The Bulls will line-up with an exciting new halves duo of former McIntyre Medalists Bobby Roberts and captain-coach Tre Holten Williams, in a bid to return to finals football in 2023.

In an incredible moment for the Gungahlin club, they will also debut their inaugural Katrina Fanning Shield side under experienced coach David Small this year.

The Bulls first-grade side finished the 2022 season the way they wished they had started, knocking off top-four sides Woden and Tuggeranong in back-to-back weeks showing glimpses of what could of been.

This year they will start the season under captain coach Tre Holten-Williams, which Roberts described as a true leader of the club.

"[Holten-Williams] has the respect of all the crew. It's amazing how much they look up to him with the years he has been their so far," Roberts said.

"He's got a few good ideas that we've rolled off each other. We've come up with some new gameplans that we think will work and it's been awesome. I'm keen to get out there and see how it goes."

Dual tag and tackle representative Matisse McNair spoke with media about the promising preparations for both the KFS and League Tag sides ahead of the new season.

"Pre-season for League Tag has been great. We've had training (sessions) with KFS at the start, so we were able to merge both the games together and focus on generic skills. We've had great numbers at training," McNair said.

"[In KFS] we've got a real mixture of everyone, but we do have some experienced girls in there as well. I think the club has really worked on those numbers and that's a credit to the club and the culture we're building.


The Gungahlin Bulls will take on the Belconnen United Sharks in round one of the Canberra Raiders Cup at Gungahlin Enclosed Oval.
